PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous open-source server-side scripting languages out there. Any site or app built on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s not that unusual that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive site with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a certain website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll never have to think about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we offer different versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single mouse click and if you’d like to change the current version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we feel that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own sites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We are unfaltering in our conviction that several years spent creating a website should not go down the tubes, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it’s new or old. Unlike lots of hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the needed version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to specify a different version for each individual website. The latter can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version either for a single site or for the entire account and the new settings will be applied in only several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never confront any website compatibility issues.
